Hiking has always been one of my favorite – “Things to Do’, during my weekends and when I’m off. After a hectic week and loads of pressure at work, I really needed some break for myself to chill and relax. And luckily, that was when I got the offer to join the hike with Pramod Dai and rest of the team. I was very excited because I knew I was going to hike with some of the best hikers of Deerwalk.

We started our hike from Taudaha to Champadevi. There was a trail which we followed and led us to our destination. On our way, we took a break under a tree shed surrounded by a beautiful view, refreshing ourselves with chilled beer and Poker. I did win some at that moment. But, that was not the end of the story. After couple of rounds, we resumed with our hike. This time I was more excited and energized to hike, as I had pocket full of chips, more than I invested at the beginning. It was a very hot and sultry day. We kept moving on with the trail. It was a steep hike and the day had to offer us more than just humidity.

So we decided to stop for a while at a villager’s house. The whole family was welcoming and friendly. Our sight caught on a local chicken “Bhaale”, which we could not resist ourselves and asked to have it for our lunch.

So we decided to stop for a while at a villager’s house. The whole family was welcoming and friendly. Our sight caught on a local chicken “Bhaale”, which we could not resist ourselves and asked to have it for our lunch. Narendra Dai fearlessly initiated to slaughter the chicken. Mean time the old lady of the house prepared the lunch for us, we settled down again for poker along with some drinks and snacks. After a while, a local Nepali lunch was ready for us. They had a fascinating culture of offering the head of the chicken to the same person who slaughtered it. Well, something new that I have never heard of. The food was very delicious. I was so full and all I wished was a nap right after that. But according to the plan, we decided to return back. We stopped at the same point, where we rested at the beginning and resumed with poker for a while. And this time, I was no more excited as I lost all the poker chips I had.

Finally, it was getting dark and our office van had arrived to pick us up. It was totally a day well spent. I was refreshed and all charged up to get back to the work, the following week.

This hike made me feel so good to look at the beauty of Nepal and feel proud of it, no matter how behind or undeveloped we are. On our way back, we all discussed about our adventures and experiences. It was really fun listening to all, because it did teach me something new.

  1. 「 生蛇 」( 醫學名稱是 『帶狀疱疹』Shingles ) 是由水痘病毒引起的疾病。水痘癒合後,病毒在神經細胞潛伏多年,日後隨時重新激活後導致的帶狀皮疹,就是「 生蛇 」。因此,凡感染過水痘的人,都有機會「 生蛇 」。病發時,身體某一部位會感到內疼或劇痛,通常是臉或背部及腰部的一側;這時由於病毒從脊髓處沿其中華一條神經擴散到身體以及去到連接的皮膚表面,形成紅疹及小水疱。帶狀疱疹疫苗Zostavax康栢苗 (蛇針)能助減低「 生蛇 」的機會,有效預防: 「 生蛇 」( 帶狀疱疹 ) 成效高達 70% 「 生蛇 」的後遺神經痛:即使紅疹痊癒,神經痛還可以持續數月或數年。年紀越大,持續有後遺 神經痛風險越高 「 生蛇 」引起的急性及長期痛症 不適用人士: 曾對疫苗成分包括明膠( Gelatin ) 及紐奧黴 ( Neomycin ) 有過敏性休克反應的人士 有原發及繼發性免疫系統問題的病患者,或正服用抑鬱免疫系統藥物(如高劑量膽固醇)的病人 患有肺結核,正發病及未經治療人士 孕婦
